Children's Miracle Network and RE/MAX are joined by their desire to provide local community hospitals with modern tools and information. Since RE/MAX became the exclusive real estate sponsor of Children's Miracle Network in 1992, RE/MAX Associates have raised nearly $116 million for the cause.
Founded in 1983, Children's Miracle Network generates health care funds and awareness programs to benefit children. The nonprofit organization's 170 participating hospitals across North America help 17 million children annually.
RE/MAX Associates raise funds for Children's Miracle Network in a variety of ways, including:
- Pledging a contribution derived from each transaction involving a RE/MAX Miracle Home®.
- Staging fundraising events - from local golf tournaments to parking-lot flea markets.
- Handling the phones at the organization's annual telethon fundraising event, the largest of its kind in the world.
In a final push to reach the $100 million mark in 2009, RE/MAX Associates defied a global recession to raise more than $7 million through the Miracle Home Program by making personal donations and sponsoring community fundraisers such as golf tournaments, auctions and more.
The Miracle Home® Program, exclusive to RE/MAX International, allows a RE/MAX Associate to donate a portion of every transaction to Children's Miracle Network. The partnership underscores Sales Associates’ involvement in the communities where they live and serve.

With its "RE/MAX Racing for Life®" slogan, RE/MAX International is proud to be a co-sponsor of the National Series Breast Cancer Survivor Recognition Program at Komen Race for the Cure events, the world's largest series of 5K runs and fitness walks. Komen estimates that more than 1 million people participated in its 2006 races.
The Susan G. Komen for the Cure Survivor Recognition Program celebrates breast cancer survivors and honors those who have lost their battles with the disease. RE/MAX shares sponsorship with Zeta Tau Alpha Fraternity, a nonprofit volunteer organization.
RE/MAX contributes pink survivor T-shirts and caps, as well as "In celebration of" and "In memory of" back signs and program banners for every race. RE/MAX Associates who are breast cancer survivors or who otherwise have been affected by the disease are encouraged to solicit pledges for their own participation. Corporate representatives host breast cancer survivor recognition tents at the more than 100 events in the United States.
Sold for the CureTM
RE/MAX launched a unique program early in 2007 exclusive to RE/MAX Sales Associates that allows agents to designate homes as Sold for the Cure properties in support of Komen for the Cure. The pink "RE/MAX in support of Komen for the Cure" banner that sits atop a RE/MAX yard sign means that Komen will receive a donation from the RE/MAX agent when that property sells.
The "$25 for 25" program
In October 2007, Komen for the Cure celebrates 25 years leading the fight against breast cancer. Together with its affiliate network, corporate partners and various donors, Komen has invested nearly $1 billion in research, education, screening and treatment since 1982. The organization has pledged to invest another billion over the next 25 years. In that time, 25 million people will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 10 million will die.
In an effort to support the organization's ongoing mission - and in celebration of Komen's achievements over the past 25 years - RE/MAX Associates will have opportunities to make $25 donations to Komen for the Cure throughout the month of October.
RE/MAX is committed to supporting Komen for the Cure's promise to save lives and end breast cancer forever.
